"Ferdinand" is a first-rate animated tale adapted from the beloved 1936 children's book about a pacifist Spanish bull who just loves to sit around and sniff flowers.Carlos Saldanha and screenwriters Robert L. Baird, Tim Federle and Brad Copeland faced a daunting task turning Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson's spare 66-page book into more than 100 minutes of film.Ferdinand is the only bull to realize that the entire bullfighting game is fixed and tries to convince his peers to flee (The voice cast includes a very good Peyton Manning as a bull prone to vomiting, and a hysterical David Tennant as a hairy Scottish bull). .Ferdinand rescues some of his pals from the "chop shop" (seeing this film with your kids may become uncomfortable if you promised burgers afterward) then sacrifices himself for the good of the group and ends up facing Spain's meanest matador in the ring. "Ferdinand" is screening in Beirut-area cinemas.
